Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Apparently some three year old toddler has went completely fucking insane, and is now trapped in a deluded world of Thomas The Tank Engine.

    The boy of three trapped in the world of Thomas The Tank Engine after watching show for five hours a day | Mail Online

    He should be running around laughing and playing with the other children at his nursery.
    But because he watches so much TV, one three-year-old boy has already become cut off from his peers, trapped in his own ‘Thomas The Tank Engine’ world instead.
    The toddler, known only as Max, has spent so long watching the show that he barely speaks to other children at

    He watches the cartoon for as many as five hours a day – and doctors fear that it has had a long-term effect on his development and communication skills.
    The programme is full of catchphrases, such as the character Thomas saying he wants to be a ‘really useful engine’ and exclaiming ‘well bust my buffers’, or those of his faithful coaches Annie and Claribel ‘We feel so full,we feel so full’.
    Another well-known phrase goes ‘Silly old Gordon fell in the ditch, fell in the ditch, fell in the ditch,’ from the episode which shows the big engine purposely running into a ditch to avoid pulling a goods’ train.
    The boy, who lives in the U.S, is being treated by a specialist in California.

    Doctors are so alarmed that they have reported his behaviour in a paper published in the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.
    However, his case is by no means unique and experts warn that children who watch too much television may be in danger of suffering learning difficulties later on.
  2. You'd only be pissing and moaning if he was out stealing cars and drinking alchopops, ffs make your minds up!

    Or Arrse even :)
  4. I'm stuck in some mundane world instead of being a superhero.

    I blame the Matrix.

    PS - re the kid - has no-one thought TO TURN THE FUCKING TELLY OFF?
  5. "So you spend five hours a day sitting and watching Thomas the Tank engine? You must have a tender behind"
    "Yes, and a guards van"

    boom-boom! :)

    If he really is stuck in the World of Thomas the Tank Engine, can you pass on a message for him to please bang out the Fat Controller.

    What an annoying fat cunt.

  7. At least in Thomas World the bloody trains are on time! I wish I was trapped there. Or, even better, I wish I was trapped in Hi-5 land:

  8. This kid has the qualities to be the next OC of 79 Railway Squadron RCT, (ops sorry RLC).

    All he needs to do now is hone in his train spotting skills.

    I am the man who rides in a (guards) van at the back of the train, I think the Driver is a fool and he thinks I am the same.
  9. Truth be known, they're probably more concerned that he's speaking with a scouse accent.
  10. Sounds like the pleb offspring off the dolies below me, if he's not sleeping or crying he's making train noises.
  11. It's not the same since Charlie left:


  12. Better to read the comments at the bottom of the article. Bless those Daily Mail Readers.

    Apparently 40 million average joe's reckon that little Max has autism. They don't think a gaggle of concerned Doctors, who wrote a paper about this bairn, would have fcuking thought of that?

    "Er, hi, I'm a middle class nobody from somewhere in East Anglia with two kids are just wonderful. I think the boy has autism. Doctors, please check him for this. Thanks, Marsha xxx." (not an actual quote)

    Soon this will be how real illnesses are diagnosed in the world.
  13. I'd be more interested if he was trapped in the world of Madeline Mc Cann.
  14. Do you have to be a specialist to belt the little cunt around the ear and tell him theres more where that came from if he doesnt stop fucking around?
  15. No, but Gary Glitter can sell you the photos.
